Looking at the types of questions they ask (last years involved how mobile technology could help to make the world more open and connected, and this years is asking to discuss whether the Internet is a human right), I deduced that Facebook must be looking to see how the applicant would fit into the culture and what they think about the types of things that Facebook cares about (their motto is to make the world more open and connected, and in the last year Facebook launched , so these essay questions are strongly tied to their activities and goals).
This has made it the most disturbing factor that has changed the way people have started to communicate with each other.
There are endless examples of how Facebook has started to affect the people and their communication.

Results have shown that at an average person spend around 14-15 minutes in a day on Facebook.People do not give a thought before they like or dislike any comment or picture posted on the site by any user.This has made one’s personal information, details and images easily accessible to the other person, in fact to the world at large.It would not be wrong to suggest that the most popular social networking site, Facebook has many negative effects on the people’s style of communication.The social media has made people share communication and information with each other to a large extent.Obviously I'm not one of the recruiters deciding this, but I can speak from gut instinct I guess haha.Since the FB U application consists only of submitting your resume, SAT scores, high school and college transcript, the essay and a phone interview which is non technical (I know one person who got asked to reverse a string but otherwise have not heard of any other technical questions being asked) -- the essay is a way for them to gauge what kind of a person you are and whether they'd be interested in getting to know you further in the interview (is my guess).In fact, even if you do not use Facebook yourself, it is such a well-known company that has had such a dramatic impact on the lives of so many, particularly those of younger generation, that there will almost certainly be some topics you can think about to write about.For example, if you do not use Facebook yourself, then you may wish to argue why other people should follow your lead, and not use the website.Earlier it was worded that were used to express one’s feelings but in the Facebook lingo, emoticons are the new language.Apart from the language used in this social media site, there is one more area that needs urgent attention.
